Car Flies Into Second Floor Of Building And Stays There

Two car occupants had minor injuries from the wild ride that ended in a dentist's office.

A cheesy action-film director couldn’t have staged this any better. But this car crashing into the second floor of a building was real. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured.

A speeding car driven by a man authorities said had been using drugs soared off a median divider and into a second-floor dental office in Santa Ana, California, early Sunday. And the vehicle lodged there as cops and rescuers arrived to extinguish a small fire and help extract one of the occupants, the Orange County Fire Authority noted in a series of tweets. Another car occupant exited unassisted. Both had minor injuries.

“The driver, who admitted to using narcotics, will be admitted to a local hospital for observation,” Fire Authority said in a statement, per the Orange County Register.

Authorities are pursuing a DUI charge against the driver, whose name wasn’t released, police told the newspaper.

A fire department wrecker truck removed the car from the building.

Police said a dirt mound in the median contributed to the car flying so high, according to ABC’s Los Angeles affiliate. 

Here is obstructed surveillance video of the wreck.
